Make sure there isn't a set screw holding that on. Got any pics of it?

I can't get the pic to open. But the video works. How tight to the block is this?

Ok I thought about it went out got my two jaw puller and some 1/4 inch by one inch plate steel welded it up to get get the crank gear off took it off. I guess seeing me do all that scared the clutch to death cause it just fell off when I walked to the other side of the block so I have it all taken apart. yeehaw !!!!

The next time your having trouble getting a bearing or something on a shaft off and have access to some of the shaft try dry ice. Go on line for vendor near you might be lucky one be close by. I had an old dodge 4x4 spindle bearing that would not budge my dad told me to try dry ice just so happens there is a Continental carbonic company in a city 20 miles away. They sale it in different forms from blocks to pellets. Not very expensive I think I paid $6 or $7 for 5 pounds of pellets. Make long story short took ice cream pail cut notch in side blocked up to spindle put the dry ice around it for a while hit the bearing with little butane torch and it came right off..
